Homeowners, do you know ...
   about the  EPA Rule?
Protect yourself, your families.....

EPA Lead Paint RULE
"Renovation, Remodeling, and Painting Rule"
The EPA’s Renovation, Repair & Painting regulation requires any persons distubing potential lead based paint in target housing (pre-78) to become RRP Certified Renovators, by taking a new one-day course about using "Lead Safe Work Practices" on the job. Contractors/Property Mgrs/ Landlords who violate the RRP regulations may face fines in excess of $32K per violation per day.

Remodeling an older home?

If you are remodeling a structure built prior to 1978, you may want to consider a 3rd Party lead dust wipe clearance examination after the work is completed. Or better yet, have the paint XRF tested professionally prior to beginning work. This is an EPA lead testing procedure which can help verify the interior was cleaned up properly, and there is no trace of residual lead based paint dust. This is particularly important if there are children in the home are 6 yrs old or younger, or if a child has an elevated blood lead level, or if anyone is pregnant. Lead is a neurotoxin to young children, and is proven to cause permanent brain damage.

Be sure to discuss lead based paint testing /concerns with your contractor PRIOR to signing the contract, and possibly withholding some of the final payment until the home has achieved a 3rd party lead clearance exam
through a dust wipe lead test by us, an EPA Certified firm.

Parents & Grandparents

When your children or grandchildren come to your home, are you sure is it lead safe? Lead dust from 40-50-60 years of remodeling can remain in the home, and is virtually invisible to the naked eye.
Have you looked for deteriorated paint? Or possibly, if there is lead dust residue in the house from previous work performed over the many years?
A simple lead test / dust wipe testing, xrf testing or risk assessment can help you find out. The samples are sent to a laboratory for analysis.

Basement walls, posts, attics, windows, radiators, closets, old play sets in the yard, garages, old clothes poles, or an old fence can all be sources of lead paint poisoning.

We can provide you with a Lead Hazard Home Evaluation, including dust wipe analysis, for as little as $200

RADON GAS ...     
 
There is no "safe" radon level

EPA's recommendations to homeowners:

  • If your radon level is 4 pCi/L or higher, fix your home.
  • If your radon level is 2 pCi/L or higher, consider fixing your home.

Odorless and invisible, Radon gas permeates through concrete floors and basement walls,

and is the #2 cause of lung cancer ....behind cigarette smoking.
